When we say we can print anything, we can, but there are a few things you have to keep in mind when choosing your image. Firstly and most importantly is resolution.
What does resolution mean?
Image resolution is the detail an image holds. The term applies to raster digital images, film images, and other types of images. Higher resolution means more image detail. Image resolution can be measured in various ways.
Generally, unless it’s a vector (we can talk about that another time) the image will be made up of pixels. You will have heard of pixels and mega-pixels when buying a camera. These are “a minute area of illumination on a display screen”; they look like lots of little squares when you zoom in.
So when choosing an image, by all means research through your popular Internet browser that possibly rhymes with Shmoogle or Bahoo!, but please do not expect this image that you’ve taken a screen shot of to be high enough resolution. When we come to prepare the image for printing, looking at it generally it could look like this:

These sites provide stock images for many different purposes. These images can also be manipulated/customized in any way once purchased.
So if you are looking at putting up a custom decal, do your research, or not! – That’s what we are here to do!!!
